Hi Roy…no worries. For the sidebar column width, there’s a setting in the customizer for this. But to help you out, start with this tutorial:
For the font size (if you want to adjust this as well, that can be done by going to Appearance >> Customize >> Typography
Plus, you can also follow this tutorial:
Correct…if you are making a new template. You can start off with using the existing “template-centered.php”. You can also refer to the WordPress site for custom templates:

The hard part is going to be coding it because typically templates grabs the header.php and footer.php when they load up on the front of the site. Because you want a very plain page that is going to be very different from the theme, you need to add part of the header.php file in yours. In the theme’s template, you will see this:
Remove the [color=#ff0000]get_header();[/color] code part, then below that you add:
<link rel="pingback" href="”>
<body itemscope=”itemscope” itemtype=”http://schema.org/WebPage”>%5B/code%5D
Then remove this…
and replace it with….
Everything in between will be whatever you are wanting to code into it for your layout, so this part will be up to you.
When you’ve created your custom template, then you can go into your admin, create a page, assign the custom template to your page, then if this is your front page, follow the Reading settings to select the front page to use that page.
The Seasonal Pro theme package has a child theme already made for you, so you just need to install that (make sure the parent theme Seasonal Pro is installed first). Then from that point on with the child theme active, you can make all your custom changes in the child theme. Make sure the structure of your child theme maintains what the parent theme has. So for a custom page template, this would go in a folder called “page-templates”, just like the parent theme has.
Awesome to hear 🙂
You would need to create a custom page template for that to happen, and then create a new page and assign your new plain white background template to it. In the page content would be your images you want to link to wherever you need them to be.
You will want to refer to the WordPress documentation on creating a new template: [url=https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/template-files-section/page-template-files/page-templates/][b]Templates[/b][/url]
Now the really important part…if you are going to create a template, you should use a child theme so that your parent theme (Seasonal Pro) can still get updates without losing your custom changes. To read more about child themes, refer to this [url=https://www.shapedpixels.com/support/basic-theme-setup/create-a-child-theme-for-theme-modifications][b]Article[/b][/url]
Nothing to worry about. What I will do though is look into a fix for the next theme update (which is coming soon). You can leave it off as many often do. It’s basically an animated placeholder for someone to look at until the page loads up.
Good morning…That is odd, but I’m wondering if there is a plugin conflict. Try disabling all plugins if you can, then try it out. Also, if you can, with the Seasonal Pro activated, are you able to go to the Customizer? If so, go to Appearance >> Customize >> Other Options, and disable the preloader and see if that helps?
Quick Follow up…I just activated my Seasonal Pro, and sure enough, it does the same thing. So disabling the preloader seems to fix it. This means there is something about the preloader script that is causing the problem.
